Seagate GoFlex 750mb Pro Review
As the Chief Memory Keeper in my family, I am someone who is always paranoid about losing all of my data. I have killed several computers in my time. I have lost important documents, many pictures and lots of other things. There are pictures of my children that I have lost and will never be able to be replaced.
I am also guilty of having way too much stuff on my computer which slows it down considerably. Long ago I used to just delete, delete, delete and often I would delete something that was critical to my computer.
For years I had no idea that any kind of back-up system was in available.Well except for flash drives. And I usually have about 10 of those in my computer bag at any given time. Basically I have things all over the place which makes it very frustrating when I am looking for something in particular.
We have several computers in our house. In fact, we have six of them. This is kind of embarrassing considering only five people live in our house. One of them is three years old and could care less about computers.
Anyway, needless to say we have tons of stuff to back up. We could really use a central place to keep all of our information. Enter the Seagate GoFlex 750mb Pro.
